Nova Singers will present "Drum Song" at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Kresge Recital Hall, Knox College, Galesburg, and at 4 p.m. Sunday at First Congregational Church, Moline.|
You'll hear the soaring voices of Nova punctuated by the rhythms of marimba, bass drum, cymbals, bongos, steel drums and more from Nikki Malley, a jazz and classical percussionist who is director of jazz studies at Knox College. This unique program will feature love songs by Stephen Paulus, "Curse Upon Iron" by Veljo Tormis, and the newest composition by Galesburg composer Daniel Godsil, "High Flight."
"I'm thrilled to be performing with my dear friend and colleague, Nikki Malley," Nova director Laura Lane said in a release. "We've long wanted to collaborate on a program of music for voices and percussion, and here it is. We have Nikki playing tons of instruments, including marimba, vibes, Shaman drum, bass drum, chimes, bongos and temple blocks, to mention a few."
Admission to the weekend concerts is $16 for adults, $12 for seniors and free for students. For information about group rates, tickets, recordings or other Nova Singers events, call (309) 341-7038, or email email@example.com.
